Calling all vintage, antique and interior lovers! If you are planning a day out in search of unique hand-painted furniture, beautiful vintage pieces and antique treasures, then head to The Old Flight House near Oxford. I visited the spacious gleaming white emporium at the beginning of the year and was really impressed with the eclectic mix of the different traders' units. I came away with a clear glass Chippendale trophy vase that became a favourite fruit bowl over the summer. In fact I loved The Old Flight House so much that I put my name down for a space and finally moved in earlier this month.

I've collected vintage clothing and accessories since I was a teenager and I also had a stall at Camden Market when I was at college and we were all running around in Victorian lace bloomers and nighties - we must have looked mad! Fast forward several decades and I've started to sell some of my collection at select vintage fairs, such as the fabulous Wanstead Vintage & Brocante Fair (LoveVintage) - one of the few fairs still offering true vintage.

Having a  permanent space to display and sell pieces from my vintage hoard is a new venture for me and it's lovely seeing everything in situ - although I have to admit it's sometimes hard when something you really love sells, such as the beautiful white hat with the velvet ribbon trim below!

The great thing about The Old Flight House is that the stock constantly evolves - the last time I visited  a gorgeous old pommel horse, a pair of sleek Art Deco perfume bottles and chalky grey hand-painted French furniture from the 1900's all caught my eye. There's also a sweet cafe offering tea and cake, light lunches and a pile of interior magazines to dip into, plus a sheltered outdoor terrace for when the sun shines. Heaven...


  1. This looks fantastic, Lottie! I can't wait to see more of your collections.

  2. Thanks so much Emily. I'll be posting some more images shortly.
